My Collections

I've been a collector since I was a kid. It started with pressed pennies and Disney World pins and then gained momentum from there. Now I collect watches, decks of cards, books, and the mugs and records shown below - they're the most photogenic of my collections.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote that "The mind travels when the body is forced to stay at home." That's why I collect things. A specific mug or watch can help my mind to travel, can make me feel like I'm in a different place, can take me back to favorite memories - my collections help me imagine.
